TULSA, Okla. — Entries continue to arrive for the 25th edition of the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals, with former champion Tim McCreadie and the new King of California Kyle Larson among the latest entrants.

After cracking the top 10 in the 24th annual Chili Bowl Nationals championship finale, Larson picked off a handful of five victories en route to the Golden State Challenge Sprint Car Series championship.

Taking the seat of Glenn Crossno’s Fontana-powered ITI Motorsports No. 38 Viper-chassis, Larson will be among several drivers vying to become the youngest winner in Chili Bowl history after Kevin Swindell staked that claim last January.

McCreadie, the 2006 Chili Bowl winner, is a late model and DIRT modified ace from Watertown, N.Y. He will be driving a Gaerte-powered Spike-chassis for Brian Daugherty with his familiar No. 39 on the tailtank.

McCreadie, the Late Model and DIRT Modified ace from Watertown, NY, tries for a second Golden Driller with a new combination in 2011, driving a Gaerte-powered Spike-chassis for Brian Daugherty with T-Mac’s familiar No. 39 on the tailtank.

Larson and McCreadie are just two of the recent entries for the 25th annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals. Other entries include USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series and USAC Silver Crown Series champion Levi Jones, defending event winner Kevin Swindell, former USAC Mopar National Midget Series champion Cole Whitt, Zach Daum, Shane Golobic, Hunter Schuerenberg, Shane Cottle and Wayne Johnson.

There are currently 196 pre-entered drivers for the Chili Bowl, scheduled for Jan. 11-15 at Oklahoma’s Tulsa Expo Raceway. The full entry list can be found by visiting www.chilibowl.com.
